In 2013 my wife and I went to a movie. It ended up being the most expensive movie we Will ever see, costing us thousands of dollars and worth every penny.

Drawing upon my notes, memories and thousands of pictures I have serialized the experience. Posts will publish each Sunday and Wednesday. Here is a link to the first:

Really nicely done. I’ve felt the same as you, that after learning about and walking a camino I can look back over my shoulder and see how life brought me to that point and how things continue to fall into place. My life has been divided in two sections, pre Camino and post Camino.

Part 5:
“… we enjoyed vistas of rolling green hills, orchards, terraced vineyards, and villas that appeared hundreds of years old. Sights little changed over two millennia when Julius Caesar’s 10th Legion called this home.”

“… I encountered a seated pilgrim. He greeted me and we spoke for a few minutes. He had received a recent unfavorable cancer diagnosis. He was walking the Camino to seek God’s blessing and asking for prayers from fellow pilgrims. The kilometers that followed for me were spent in quiet thought for that gentleman.”
Part 11 of a serialized examination of one couple’s Camino.

“…I suspect that my father’s inner child was imprisoned forever that day at his uncle’s grave or worse yet, died with him.

“…I stood alone at the gate to the abandoned castle, keys in hand. …I entered (and) stood with Sancho’s ghost. Sancho and I were not alone. I provided eyes for the spirits of long forgotten paleo tribal leaders, dead Roman generals, ancient Visigoth chiefs, invisible Moors, and Sancho, all of whom had gazed upon the surrounding plains as I now did…”

“Our Albergue dorm room was shared by 15 other Peregrinos who were in various stages of pre-departure preparation. Motion stopped as Andre’s sadness spread through the room. This became personal for each of us.”
